LaGreek is a freshman in Amendments Await Nod of Quad Vote Amendments to the consti tution of the Residence As sociation for Men (RAM) are now up for approval by the individual houses in Selleck Quadrangle. Two amendments are be ing sought. The first would change parliamentary author ity from Robert's Rules of Order to the Sturgis Code of Parliamentary P r o c edure. Proponents point out that the Sturgis Code is the one used by the University speech department and is simpler than the Roberts system. Amendment two would al low the election of a vice president of RAM. The pro posed vice-president would also serve as co-orainator of all RAM committees." In support "of the amendment, it is argued that the present system, . in which the treas urer has the duties of a vice president, has often caused an excessive work load for the treasurer. Passage of the amend ments requires ratification by twelve of the 16 houses in the Quad, and ratification in an individual' house requires a two-thirds majority of those voting. The vote should be completed before the end of the week, according to PHI Isaacs, RAM publicity chairman. Euripides" by Keith M. Al drich.
